Cardano: new version of the Daedalus wallet for the Shelley testnet

The Cardano project has announced the launch of the new version of the Daedalus wallet for the Shelley testnet. 

Cardano’s Shelley era began in late 2019 with the launch of the testnet, and by April there were already 1,199 registered pools, 18,000 active users, and 12.45 billion ADA tokens staked. 

It will now be possible to use the new Daedalus wallet to receive, store and send ADA on Shelley’s testnet. 

The new version of the wallet is specifically dedicated to all ADA owners who have staked their tokens on the testnet, so that they can verify the rewards they have collected and whether they have been assigned correctly. 

This will allow for final verification of all the rewards gained, before they are transferred to the mainnet, by the end of the summer. 

The 1.1.0-STN1 is the second version of Daedalus, and it will obviously also be compatible with Shelley’s mainnet: the rewards collected during this testing phase will then be made available to the user through the Daedalus wallet on the mainnet.

In the near future, new features will also be added to Daedalus, in an incremental way.Over time other features will be released, including: 

  • delegation support, 
  • support for Byron legacy wallets, 
  • the procedure for moving all funds from the Byron legacy wallets to the new Shelley wallets.

A tutorial has also been posted on iohk.zendesk.com showing how users can verify if their rewards are successfully reflected on the Shelley testnet. 

In order to run the balance check, however, the Rewards wallet phrase from the Incentivized Testnet is required, so extreme caution is advised.

The procedure shown is not particularly complicated, but it is necessary to do it correctly and, above all, in complete safety. 

A video tutorial has also been published showing how to proceed, starting from the link on the announcement page of the new wallet release:
